Did SunRisers Hyderabad go Overboard on Harry Brook?

Did SRH Overspent of England Opener Harry Brook

TATA IPL 2023 Mini-auction: Many Experts believed that SRH went a little too much on Harry, from the like of David Hussey who said that I believed SRH probably paid too much. Although I’m not shocked by the price he demanded, I believe SRH should have spent more money on a player like Aiden Markram who was already on the list. Let us look at details on Did SRH Overspent on Harry Brook?

Although a good purchase, did they go overboard? I hope they don’t pass up anyone in the back end, such as a capable home spinner like M Ashwin or Markande.

Bidding war for Harry Brook

He had a base price of INR 1.5 crore when he joined the IPL 2023 mini-auction, and Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals were the first teams to start bidding for him.

Sunrisers Hyderabad participated in the mad scramble for Brook and eventually won the contract for INR 13.25 crore. Through the 2023 season, this will be Brook’s maiden participation in the IPL.

The 23-year-old played his first T20I in 2022 at Bridgetown against the West Indies. In 17 innings for England, Brook has a strike rate of 137.77 and an average of 26.57. He was also a member of the Three Lions team that won the World Cup in Australia.

Excellent Recent Performance against Pakistan

In the most recent Test series against Pakistan, Brook quickly rose to the top run-scorer position, amassing 468 runs at an average of 93.60, including three centuries, one half-century, and the maximum score of 153. For his outstanding performance in the longer format, he was also handed the “Man of the Series” award.

Harry Brook’s Heart-Touching Reaction from his Family Members

“Am really looking forward to play for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. I have heard the atmosphere is unbelievable. One of the best grounds in the comp (competition). So, I am really excited for us to be back to Uppal.”
